WATERSHED SOLUTIONS SUMMIT 2012
March 17, 2012
Normandale Community College
Can Stakeholders and Policy merge to overcome barriers and find opportunities to get to solutions?
Join us as we learn about the urgent threats and innovative water projects and ask our presenters: How do we move from policy and planning to Watershed Solutions for water conservation, management, ground water, water quality, habitat and production?
Two significant bi-national agreements are at the forefront: the Great Lakes Water Quality Agreement which is close to completion and the Great Lakes Water Compact for which water conservation implementation action is required in order to ward off the thirsty states eyeing the Great Lakes Basin waters.
The Farm Bill, up for renegotiation, contains over 90% of the Conservation Programs that protect our lands and waters. Will conservation compliance be a driver for successful outcomes? In the past water management decisions were driven by unsustainable water use policies.
Now is the time to develop a vision and action for water conservation based on policy and laws that prioritize sustainable water use for the present and future.
Your insights and questions are important and welcome.
Ticket includes lunch and beverages.
